I was looking for a reliable car with a little flair. I turned in my Honda Accord and went with the HHR. Not only is it fun to drive, but the ride quality rivals a much heavier car without substituting the nimbleness of a compact. I haven't had so many compliments on my car since I drove my '69 Camaro. I even enjoy washing it!
The info center computer is great, all at the touch of your fingertips. The rear storage area is very versatile. Lumbar support in the drivers seat is also nice. The A/C rocks in this car.
